Forum: opensource_movies Subject: Updates of German Newsreels

Hi everyone!

I uploaded a lot of German Newsreels called "Die Deutsche Wochenschau". Everytime I upload some of them they can be found if you search them. But since 2 days the search results are not updated. If you search for "Die Deutsche Wochenschau Nr. 642" you will not find it although it is available here: http://www.archive.org/details/1942-12-21-Die-Deutsche-Wochenschau-Nr.642
Is it only a temporarily mistake or what can I do?

Greetings

German newsreel footage is NOT Public Domain or free. It should be. It's history, you know? But, it is still owned and under active copyright. I know because I have been working on a documentary film and the people at Deutsche Wochenschau GmbH are responsible for materials from several newsreel sources. It is NOT Public Domain just because someone has posted it! My film required newsreel/archival material and I can tell you from first-hand experience it should NOT be here unless someone has made arrangements with Deutsche Wochenschau GmbH.

This is why he Archive will be eventually be shut down; by people uploading copyrighted material without realising - or caring - that's EXACTLY how to shut this site down. So, enjoy it while you can!
